This was pretty good. I liked the reality tv show and the behind the scenes look at that kind of competition. I also really liked how slow burn the romance was, although it did mean that some parts near the end felt kind of rushed.

The first chapter had a few awkward beats for me, not sure why, but I was interested enough to keep going and I'm very glad I did. The story quickly caught me up in it. The competition is delightful, the characters are fun, and the sex is hot. It was lovely seeing the leads get their happy ending.

Do be certain you're okay with the content warning list; some aspects are visited rather intensely.
